    8. The former cave diver.

    11. The heartbreak to end all heartbreaks.

    From my 7th grade diary, on the day that my "boyfriend" broke up with me: "Dear Diary, It's over, he dumped me." Then underneath that in giant bubble letters: "I shall never smile again." Then I signed it with my full name in fancy script like it was a death certificate for my heart.

    12. The creative cartoonist.


    The comic strip ended with the crab pulling out his wallet upon seeing discount mangoes. Yep. A crab drunk-drove to a parody grocery store to by half-off mangoes.

    13. The bluntly honest summary.

    "Today I hav(e) nothing to do."

    14. The secret urination.

    I was cleaning off my desk and found a torn out page from a diary from long ago. It read: "Today I peed my pans. I did not tell my parents. That is all"

    15. The mythical creature maker.

    I used to write weird supernatural romance fanfictions involving my crush and I when I was ten years old. My favorite one: We made mer-babies while kissing behind the "Birthing Coral." The Birthing Coral had special powers that if your true love and yourself kissed behind it, you would make mer-babies.

    18. The escaped exotic pet.

    "I'm NEVER going to stop crying until my dad brings my pet lizard back." (I decided to hold a wild lizard captive in a fanny pack in my house. I left it out one night and my dad threw the lizard outside.)

    “This morning I just got to read Harry Potter and the Sorcer’s Stone! My mom saved my life because she let me read the book.”

    20. The curious inquiry.

    I was in 7th grade and I had just had my first kiss with my then boyfriend Shawn. I wrote in my diary, "Shawn is so cute!! I want to make his babies. I wonder what his peewee looks like." (And btw, we were married just last year. I showed him that thing in my diary and he wouldn't stop laughing for an hour.)
